A long weekend and the celebration of Independence Day is coming in a couple of days. Each city tries to celebrate Independence Day in its own way and in Miami the celebrations will be all over the place.Nevertheless, whatever the scale, scope or imagination, both organizers and guests of the event will find a celebration which best suites them.We suggest you to visit the following events. And bear in mind that all of them are extremely entertaining.
Miami Beach celebrates Independence Day with “Fire on the Fourth,” a beach celebration sponsored by Coca-Cola which includes a live performance jazz songstress Nicole Henry, South Florida Symphony Orchestra Quartet and DJ Maximus 3000; celebration starts at 7 p.m. and the fireworks display at 9 p.m.
Key Biscayne’s Fourth of July bash includes a traditional parade with professional and homemade floats (the most creative gets a $1000 prize), music and fireworks. The parade runs along Crandon Boulevard starting at 11 a.m. followed by a picnic at Village Green and fireworks shooting off around 9 p.m.
One of Miami’s most popular spots to watch the fireworks on July 4, Bayfront Park plays host to America’s Birthday Bash every year. The fun starts at 3 p.m. with the Kids’ Zone, music, food and beverages. Later on enjoy the great view of the fireworks display over the Bay, which starts at 9 p.m.
The show will go on at Peacock Park as planned with the fireworks starting at 9 p.m.
If you want to attend one of the city fireworks festivals, be certain to arrive early as parking is often at a premium and traffic and crowds fill the streets making it unusually difficult to get where you want to go. Beach goers should refrain – as always – from bringing glass containers onto the sand but picnics, beach chairs and towels are essential. All activities are FREE and open to the public. Start times for musical performances vary, but most fireworks start from at 9pm.
